The thing is, though, that putting the & operator at the end of nautilus, I'm supposed to be able to enter new commands after I close (or 'X' out of) the nautilus window. This happens with most other programs like Matlab. Except that this doesn't happen with Debian. The distribution involved is a Debian distribution (not totally sure what version it is). (HowTos)
